[SHOT 2019] SIG SAUER News
In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the new SIG Sauer products that were displayed at the company’s booth during the SHOT Show 2019 exhibition. Probably the coolest firearm in their booth was the new .338 Norma Magnum medium machine gun placed inside a glass display case right in the middle of the company’s booth. But let’s come down to earth and talk about the firearms that we can actually own. Here is a photo report of new SIG Sauer firearms seen at SHOT Show.
The SIG Sauer P320 X-Compact is the latest addition to the X-Series of SIG Sauer pistols. It is available in 9mm only. The pistol features X-RAY3 day/night sights, flat trigger, optics ready slide with a plate covering the red dot sight mounting cutout. The overall length of X-Compact pistol is 7″ with a barrel length of 3.6″.
This handgun is the SAO (single action only) version of the P229 Legion Compact pistol.
SIG Sauer MCX Rattler Canebrake. Handy little .300 BLK suppressor-ready gun that comes with an extended handguard to protect the suppressor (and your hands) as well as provide a sufficient amount of rail space for mounting accessories or practicing a stance with an extended support hand. The Canebrake ships with an inert suppressor which means you won’t have to go through the NFA procedures for purchasing this gun. The gun can be shot with the inert can installed.
SIG Sauer MPX Copperhead. This little snake is the most compact firearm in MPX series of PCCs/pistols. Its overall length is 14.5″. The tiny 3.5″ barrel features an integrated muzzle brake. The handguard includes an integral front hand stop. Overall, this rig weighs 4.5 lbs (2 kilograms). The MSRP of MPX Copperhead is $1,835.
SIG Sauer MODX9 Modular Handgun Suppressor. This suppressor has a stackable design. The sections are the baffles which are simply screwed into each other. Besides the base part that mounts to the barrel and the end cap (which is also a baffle), all other sections have an identical design. According to the company’s officials, the three-baffle configuration shown in this photo is hearing safe for the 9mm cartridge.
The far left baffle doubles as an end cap.
